Hollywood film star, Tom Hardy stunned drivers as he pulled up at a petrol garage in Nuneaton during his motorbike test.
Joanne Vowles was shocked when she spotted movie star Tom Hardy walking around a petrol station. The actor was dressed in a high-vis jacket with L-plates attached to his bike in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, on Saturday afternoon.
Joanne Vowles, a teaching assistant who spotted Hardy, said: “I looked over at this motorcyclist who had just taken his helmet off. I thought he looked a bit dishy and then I realised it was Tom Hardy. He smiled at me and I asked if it was him and he said ‘yes’ and the next thing I asked was ‘well, what on earth are you doing here then?’
“He is the last person you expect to see in a small town in the Midlands but he told me he was taking his motorbike test. I asked him what for and he told me it was a secret.”
The Mad Max and Batman star posed with Joanne and her friends while wearing high-vis during his motorbike test. Joanne said: “I still can’t get over the fact we met Tom Hardy filling up with petrol on the forecourt of an Esso garage in Nuneaton while taking a motorbike test. You would never imagine it – I really hope he passed.”
He’s currently odds on favourite to be cast as the next James Bond, following Daniel Craig’s contract coming to an end – so maybe Hardy is preparing for a big-budget Bond chase?
